Monterey Chicken

My Mom and I went to lunch a few weeks back, we went to Chili's and she got the Monterey Chicken and said "This is good, you should find a recipe and make it" Ofcourse I did. I made it down at her house last night Although it was good, it wasn't as good as it was at Chili's. Maybe the chicken should be marinated or something.

Chili's Monterey Chicken (From: Recipezaar)

  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons BBQ sauce
  • 2 slices crisp bacon (should be very crispy)
  • 1/4 cup monterey jack and cheddar cheese blend

Pound chicken breast until it is somewhat flattened, and season with salt and pepper.

Spray Pam in a nonstick skillet, and cook chicken breast until it is done.

Transfer to a serving plate.

Top chicken breast with Barbeque sauce, bacon, and cheese.

Broil chicken breast in the oven, or melt the cheese in a microwave.

Sprinkle with a small amount of cold chopped tomatoes and chives.

Even if it wasn't quite as good, it still sounds very easy for a weeknight meal. I bet if the chicken was marinated in some of the bbq sauce, it would be delicious!!
